2018 Fantasy Outlook
After barely playing as a rookie in 2016, McKissic made his way onto the game-day roster in Week 4 and never looked back, finishing the year as the Seahawks' main receiving option out of the backfield. At 5-10, 195, the converted college wideout lacks the size to be an every-down running back in the NFL, but he's a mismatch against linebackers given his sharp routes and elusiveness, and he showed he can contribute on the ground when he took his first carry of the season 30 yards for a score. McKissic was trying to beat out C.J. Prosise for a role on passing downs, but a Jones fracture suffered in late August ended McKissic's bid. Read Past Outlooks

Scores late TD

January 6, 2019
McKissic caught two of three targets for 13 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's wild-card loss to the Cowboys.
With the Seahawks behind by two scores, McKissic hauled in both of his targets in the two-minute drill, with the second catch coming in the end zone for Russell Wilson's first passing touchdown of the game. McKissic spent the first 11 games of the season on injured reserve with a foot injury, and he garnered just five touches in six games since then. This was McKissic's third season with Seattle, and he'll become a free agent in March. If he sticks around, his pass-catching abilities could complement Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny in 2019, and his role would increase further if Mike Davis opts to sign elsewhere.
